Whip up this Whoppers Malted Milkshake for a thick and creamy chocolate treat that’s the perfect way to celebrate summer!


School is finally out for the year —  cue the Hallelujah Chorus — and I, for one, am so ready to celebrate! Of course, the kids are too, but sometimes, the craziness that goes with the last few weeks of the school year can be harder on the parents. Am I right? I even got slightly sidetracked from my usual posting schedule. Sigh.

And, we just finished up with all of the family birthdays, which means I get a break from shopping, baking, wrapping and all that good stuff. So, it’s back to normal, or semi-normal, for our crazy family, including my oldest baby, who is home from college for the summer.

So yes, we survived the school year, we’re all under one roof again, and this all calls for a little celebration!


Since we all love ice cream, I decided to treat the kids to homemade milkshakes. Inspiration can be found in the strangest places, and I actually got the idea for these shakes on a carton of Whoppers candy.

I bought one to use for our weekly family movie night, and the malted milkshake recipe sounded so good that I just had to try it.

This is actually the third time I made these malted milkshakes. The first time, they turned out too runny — we like our shakes super thick. The second time around, the shakes were good, but I didn’t get a picture. Then, someone ate most of the Whoppers candy, and I had to go buy more.

And the third time? That’s the charm. Needless to say, I have some very happy kiddos right now!

I ended up adding more ice cream than the original recipe calls for. Like I said, we like super thick shakes. We’re talking shakes so thick that you almost have to scoop them out with a spoon.

I also used both chocolate and vanilla ice cream instead of just vanilla. This made this frozen drink a little extra chocolaty but not overly so. The Hubs does not like chocolate, but he really liked these shakes.


You can top them with whipped cream, chocolate syrup, more Whoppers or whatever you want. The sky is the limit when it comes to garnishing shakes. And the malted milk taste made these summer treats extra special!

We absolutely loved these easy Whoppers malted milkshakes. They’re perfect for summer, but you can enjoy these frozen treats any time at all.

Happy Summer!
